    Broken timing belt leads to low idle?

    Two things that come immediately to mind. Something in the rotating assembly is binding up causing a lot of drag, which may be what broke your timing belt in the first place. (Idler, tensioner, or possibly oil pump) -or- One of your belts could be off a tooth. It's easy to do if you've never done them before. Recheck all the marks and make sure they are dead on. That doesn't account for the belt breaking, but would account for the drivability issues. Good luck. Dan
  2. If you anticipate possibly having to fix something else, or in your case, need to monitor whether something needs fixed or not, I couldn't imagine going through the trouble of putting the covers back on. Even if it shortens the life of the belts by a few thousand miles, the difference in effort involved to change them (or anything else) is exponentially worthwhile in my opinion. I've had open belts for a few years now, BUT like DaveT, I don't offroad much. Dan

    A Long Shot? A/C Compressor

    Since Subarule passed on the offer, I would be an interested buyer if you just want to get rid of it. I just "rescued" a 92 Loyale that "just quit running..... but the timing belts are good." They weren't.....lol Anyway, it has that compressor. Let me know. Dan
  4. The shift linkage is notorious for getting loose, which makes for some interesting shifting, but that doesn't come and go, it just is. (At least in my experience.) I wonder if you've got motor and trans mounts that have gone bad allowing for things to move around under certain conditions? Sometimes it's sitting where it's supposed to, and other times maybe it's askew enough to cause issues? Not something I remember reading about, but it would allow for the inconsistency. Good luck!

    A Long Shot? A/C Compressor

    They made it right when I showed them what I had. The stock photo in the add was like mine, so I didn't think to specify (actually, I had no idea there was more than one back case ) Back of the back, vs side of the back. Glad it's all going to work out. Back to your deal already in progress with no further interruptions from me Dan

    A Long Shot? A/C Compressor

    Not to be a pain, but if this means what I think it means, it won't work in his application. The bracket will be right about where the discharge is. It's the same one I got sent the first time. If by rear you mean the side of the back cover then I sincerely apologize. Dan On edit: Pictures attached.

    A Long Shot? A/C Compressor

    This is the one I used. Going on two years, no issues. https://www.ebay.com/itm/REMAN-A-C-COMPRESSOR-COMFORT-TEMP-57453R-FITS-1994-SUBARU-LOYALE-1-8L/132232695464?epid=76242066&hash=item1ec9aecea8%3Ag%3AZsgAAOSwPWRZSDQ4&_nkw=57453&_from=R40&rt=nc There are (at least) two different back cases for this model compressor, the one you see with the rear fitting on the side of the back case, and one with the fitting on the back of the back case (the compressor itself is identical.) They sent the wrong case, but made it right with no cost to me, I just had to explain, "the one like in the picture," and attached a picture of what they sent vs what I had, with what was posted. Very nice people to deal with. And it won't work without the second belt. With only one belt, it will slip, and the lockup safety will kick the compressor out. Good luck! Dan
  8. Ummmm..... guys? Operative word "missing." Dan

    3AT modulator

    Thanks for the reminder I have that 2wd trans we talked about sitting on my garage floor if you want it, or anything off or out of it. Dan
  10. This still shows having them: https://www.subarupartsdepot.com/oem-parts/subaru-cover-remote-inner-left-hand-760123200 Good luck! Dan
  11. There is now one less set available in tan....... Thank you for the heads up. I had given up even looking for them anymore. Dan

    "Heavy Duty" CV Axles

    Somebody used them and said they were no better than the other offerings out there in aftermarket land. I used Surtraks after they took over/ bought out EMPI. I wasn't impressed, but they were the 8003s, not the 9003s, and it was several years ago. Good luck! Dan

    Clutch Cable Length?

    DO NOT buy an aftermarket clutch cable. I thought I knew better than the collective and bought aftermarket, I never could get it to operate correctly. Don't do it, you'll be replacing it again with OEM. Dan

    What happened?

    Every few years we get a dose of crazy roll through here. The last guy wanted to post romantic stories about his brat all over the place. I forget the one before him. We were overdue. When you amass over 200 posts in less than 10 days, there are some manic issues involved. If you are worried about your family's safety being compromised based on a blurry picture on a very obscure website, you likely have some paranoia issues as well. Good luck to you, and "your buddy."

    What happened?

    If it had to do with motorcycle carbs and plumping section intakes, it would appear that person, and all of their content has disappeared. I was wondering how long it would take....... Dan
